10 Best Places to Hide Your Guns in Plain Sight

gunbookA gun safe is a great place to hide your guns from burglars…

But lets face it, burglars aren’t our only concern when it comes to hiding firearms. Not to mention, you can hardly call a gun safe a place with “ready access.”

Chances are, when you really need a gun, you won’t have a chance to go to the safe and punch in your combo. When trouble comes knocking, you may only have a few seconds to get ready.

That’s why I recommend finding other safe and sneaky places to hid your guns, places where no one would think to look for them — but that you could access quickly in a pinch. Here are my top 10:

1. Fake electric outlet. No burglar or government confiscator would think to look in a fake outlet. Be creative. With a little innovation, you can make this setup very easy to access.

2. Hanging over the doorframe in a hall closet. Most closets are “shallow” so even if a burglar does rummage through, he probably won’t look straight-up over his head.

3. Hollowed out book. Purchase a thick hardback at your local Salvation army and go to town with an exacto blade. Oldest trick in the book ;)

4. Air conditioning/return air vents create a nice deep space to store a handgun. These can be functioning or false. They can also be high enough where children can’t reach them.

5. False flooring. If you have wood floors, make an inconspicuous cut in an inconspicuous place, perhaps near a wall or behind a piece of furniture.

6. Custom or modified cabinets/bookshelves. Check out this awesome bookshelf for ideas.

7. Behind a thick picture frame. I’ve seen great hiding places made by fastening holsters to the back of the actual picture and using an extra thick frame.

8. Inside large pottery. If you have large enough decorative pottery pieces, or a small enough weapon, you can simply drop your gun inside.

9.  A drawer with a false bottom is the second oldest trick in the book (next to the hollowed-out book) and will fool crooks all day long. They’re easy to build and install too.

10. Under your couch/recliner. Remove the fabric on the underside of your couch and there is ample room to store a larger weapon like a shotgun or rifle.

    I’ve also heard of hiding guns on the wall behind your curtains.

    Empty cereal boxes can be a good idea too, depending on your living situation.

    So now it is on the net and all the inspectors or gvt. has to do is look up where everyone is hiding their guns. Brilliant!!!!!

    • The Patriot Caller says:

      It’s your call what information you choose or choose not to share, J. ;)

    • Well now I have a bunch more ideas. Some I already knew — but got some more good ideas and I’m not putting it on here! Used to laugh at my Mom for putting things in strange places where she couldn’t even find them again. When I cleaned her house out — I used to wonder what in the world was her so called “organization” all about. I used to tell her that nobody was going to break in here. They would kill themselves trying to find anything of value. And we would laugh. Well now I know her secrets.

    • With your brains, we don’t have to worry about you being around when SHTF time. These are places to hide from home invasion. To hide from government who will use sniffing dogs and electronics you have to put them in sealed plastic items and bury them outside under some thing that will hide them like a fireplace or grill, even the best places like under the mud in a real water feature, or in the garage in a battery with the acid removed.. The most important thing you need to survive is a brain. The smart people will be the ones who survive anyway so bye, bye.

      • In a plastic bad in the bottom or the litterbox, millions of places

      • TheSwafferOne says:

        Sorry but the prepared will be the ones to survive, most smart people are dumbass’s when it comes to commen sense.
        But the best way is JESUS CHRIST, he our only hope for a future beyond this crazy world run by egomaniacs(wealthy)
        but their money won’t save them from rejecting JESUS. Hell will be filled with ex-billionaires.

        • AMEN, Brother!
          Excellent and very true comment.

        • Jason D. says:

          Or whichever spiritual construct one may revere.

        • The Swaffer One, You speak of most wealthy people don’t have any common sense? What about hardworking people who are wealthy that have common sense? Why bring Jesus Christ into this, when the article is talking about noticing a person carrying a weapon? Your grammar and spelling just shows you don’t have much of either. Keep thumbing on your Bible. Maybe JC will be there to help you notice who is carrying a weapon or a Bible in their pants. Good Luck with that.

    On your belt under your shirt is the a good place.
